2:05 pm
e u itself may have essentially been complicit for not having already taken more concrete action. all this to, to one to promoter, very broad, moder. we've opened society in the past. they wanted to legalize immigration more, and his surely e for e v, our refugees are but to population are, are hostile to any more to more immigration. and this is why you were left to demonstrate that each it promotes you were strong or extra extra on our board us. otherwise the national, both of us will be more and more erected on strength front, like you're like in hungary. this is the trends more immigration is even as a security problem because of islamist image crating. so it's more on mo, as sensitive subject. a suicide bombing at

made a rapid security meltdown in the wake of the taliban takeover and us pallet for we got some unique insights on of can the sound from a man who served in the bush administration at that time of the us invasion on later us donald trump security advisor, john bolton as the base. gaston ortiz going underground show. we'll be showing the full interview, tried saturday years. part of it. you say in your book the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment as a former national security advisor, a fee by the administration foreign policy, especially on afghanistan? well, i think this is one of those few instances where bind in trump agree on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan and both ignored the consequences. i think many
2:08 pm
people thought were foreseeable when biden did was take trumps deal, which was flawed in many, many respects, and essentially adopted it as his own policy disregarded the advice of senior advisors and the pentagon, the state department, the white house, and i think the consequences have been playing to save it, returned to afghanistan to control by the taliban, and everything that's flowing from that, including the likelihood of foreign terrorist returning and again, using afghanistan as a base plan, terrorist operations around the world. so this is a retreat by the united states, from the international stage, something by and believe then since at least 2000, i say say, ironically, trump wave dana to i think it's a mistake for the u. s. i think it's a mistake for stability. certainly, it's a mistake for the people of afghanistan. she is daily debt to from coven

19 asserts, be on one person for the 1st time since the start of the pandemic. and case numbers are rising fast to, especially here in the capitol ortiz. dmitri polk is across the developments. well, it seems that despite all the efforts by the russian government to try and curve the spread of the corona virus, the numbers unfortunately continue to grow and are even reaching record levels over the last 24 hours. over $33000.00 new cases have been confirmed throughout the country by 9 percent of which were apparently asymptomatic. but a new morbid record was established over a 1000 deaths were reported. it's the highest number of daily cove deaths. there's been since the start of the pandemic now in terms of the numbers 6 and a half 1000 of the new cases were reported from moscow, where authorities recently launched 20 new centers where people can get free express covered tests. that's in addition to the vaccination sites throughout the city, which authorities,
2:10 pm
they are the key to battling the karone of ours. you look where most mass rapid testing is spreading across europe. moscow is also involved in this experiment. we've open 20 testing points in the capitals document, centers and shopping malls, and we will open 30 more points on october. the 18th to cover the broader population. again, i'm calling on everybody to get to not collated because there are currently no other ways to shield yourself from this disease. it's especially important for the elderly. now the testing campaign has also spread to several schools where students canal to receive the free express covered 10th. however, authorities say that testing is only the 1st step and that the kingery into defeating the crown of ours is of course vaccinations. russian president vladimir putin has repeatedly highlighted the importance of boosting the vaccination re throughout the country, especially for the sake of those who are at the highest risk of complications from the virus. the health ministry as also come out with reports showing that of all the people who have died from the virus, only less than a fraction of percent were actually vaccinated. once again highlighting the
2:11 pm
importance of vaccinations. in terms of numbers at this point, over 51000000 russians have at least received their 1st jap. that's about a 3rd of the population and regions continue introduce more measures to try and curve the spread of the disease. in some cases, introducing mandatory vaccinations for certain groups of citizens that's injection and in addition to restrictions, all aimed at trying to curb the rise in numbers and that's throughout the country. okay, another world news today, protesters calling for constitutional reform in chile been met by heavy handed police resistance, the protest mark the upcoming 2nd anniversary of a series of demos in the south american nation coined social logic, developed to try and counter what those rallying see a state made social inequality. there have been protests in par, i, so we're working conditions for fire fighters solutions. the monday better pay

increased resources on the additional protection of the job. why police were out in numbers closely for at least 3 people are dead now for a 4.8 magnitude earth quick stroke. the indonesian island of bali today, the car in december area on the eastern side of the popular tourist destination was at one of the worst effected with more than half of the houses in one village reported to have been wiped out. the quake struck just as the island is beginning to welcome travellers. again, i'm still ahead here on our team will take you on a journey to russia's extreme north to where a floating nuclear power plant is breathing new life into a coastal town. not ahead shortly. ah,
2:13 pm
well the gig is ah president other land merican country armed with volcano energy is calling out the wall street and the whole financier class ah, is your media a reflection of reality in the world transformed what will make you feel safer? isolation for community. are you going the right way or are you being led somewhere? which direction? what is true was is way in the world corrupted. you need to
2:14 pm
descend, have join us in the depths or remain in the shallows. oh, hello again. a remote time in rushes, eastern arctic is experiencing an economic boone after being hooked up to the world's 1st floating atomic power plant. it's now becoming a vital lake in the rapidly developing northern shipping route. ortiz constantine rush, coff made the long journey to perfect. here says extended report, ah, ah, we are in the vic or rushes northern mo city where the main job is to survive cold, extreme weather and hostile environment. when the soviet union collapsed,
2:15 pm
this place used to be a ghost hour. i was want to rushes bustling, seaports along the northern sea route. the country's ambitious project in the arctic aim to reshape international trade project is also the site of a daunting experiment, which made it the 1st city in the world powered by floating nuclear reactors. let's see what life was like in russia's atomic. boone town. we are like a big family emetic nationality people are actually friends with each other here. let me show you something. what did you eat for dinner yesterday? yes, i don't have dinner. i'm on a diet. green onion, 16 west dollars. some parts of the city didn't look like a ghost out. the snow still turned blacks are they make is located in chicago. the country's most
2:16 pm
eastern region which borders alaska. it's not an island but local, still referred to the rest of russia as the mainland. perhaps because of how isolated the field. for instance, there are no permanent roads or railway tracks, leading to perfect. your only options would be ice breakers or airplanes. while we're not into that yet, but we're already tired of traveling. ha has been what's 24? no. over 24 hours is for left. moscow and we're still flying across russia. first. we flew to another severest then further east to the city of muggy. done ha! then we had to stay here overnight and now it's our final lack a 2 hour fly to pick on one on the soviet era care place. with the a and 28 that took us to perfect, have the smallest restroom i've ever been and but no complaints we're, we're going,
2:17 pm
it's not about comfort. flew one of the 1st things that strike you into that is that there are no trees just nothing. the land here is so frozen, nothing grows on it, and that makes the landscape bleak and sadly boring. so to live in things up, the coloring, buildings in orange or pink is probably not the worst idea. the next notorious for harsh with but it's not just about the cold exactly is actually so ferocious. there are videos of
2:18 pm
people falling over in rome across the street, not being able to stand up with a local resident soya soccer shows of her winter outfit, a mink fur coat. she knows animal advocates won't like it and she doesn't care into a vac. if you're not dress warm enough, since you die, you shouldn't have burned the nurse how cold it had been winter and today the temperature drops as low as minus 45 minus put 8 degrees celsius. it's very cold and you still go out on the street. of course, harsh climate dictates every aspect of physics life. let me show you something
2:19 pm
because of the permafrost. most of the cities communications run above ground and are hidden inside concrete boxes like this one right here. and this also became a popular alternative for regular sidewalks which some times are impassable, especially in winters i. so as they say one in rome, or in perfect, we're gonna hop on one of the communication lines and get around like real locals with most of the residential buildings and projects have been built on pilots. the space left between the 1st floor and permanently frozen ground helps to keep houses warm, but it looks like somebody has gone even further in fighting the cold. there is a building, in fact that has empty glass bottles fade right into the walls and you can literally see this from the outside. this extra layer of air is supposed to save up
2:20 pm
heat. i've never heard of that technology. i'm not sure if it works and there is no way to check because the building has been abandoned. but i guess if you want to survive into god, god, you got us. the creative. the city still keeps lots of soviet era structures and monuments, most of which have been around since today was founded in 1930. 0 um it was gold, another precious metals that attracted people and turned the place into an arctic blue town initially to vac was the place of at least 3 glock. cheap labor came in handy in the rapidly growing settlement. the collapse of the soviet union had a devastating effect on the deck with almost no support from the mainland. the city quickly lost half of its population and lot of residential buildings were left completely abandoned. some parts of the city still looked like a ghost town. people
2:21 pm
were so desperate to leave in the 1990. sometimes they traded entire apartments were every plane tickets to moscow. after years of exposure to extreme weather, there is no way people can live in these houses again, and it's too expensive to tear them down. to what nature has done to these buildings, the new people leave something behind the wilderness claims. it almost as if there is a message and gets his guard down or you might be next. how do you feel about the city? does it feel like it's on its death row or the opposite bias in the bottle? i don't know why it's developing not to face the district has been rebuilt completely. that, you know, we can see all the new house it and you power plant was built on and you church has been blessed to the rich lives in seneca. yet. yes, of course. there is one particular project that breathed new life into the city.
2:22 pm
and how did to move on from the devastation of the 1996, the via course, as they put herself on the map as a side of a daunting experiment. it's the 1st city in the world that lives off a floating nuclear power plant. seriously. this huge thing you see right there is basically a c platform would to submarine style and tonic reactors on it. no one has ever done this before. the power plant named academic la monassa was assembled in st. petersburg and then moved to prevent by see it turned out to be way cheaper and easier than bringing thousands of constrain workers and tons of materials to remote region like chicago. russia plans on building a small fleet of these floating stations and use them to power remote facilities and maybe even offshore oil and gas black boards. but certainly system of only the top i was brought up on everyone is concerned said on the motive there is a c store or is to nami, what's going to happen to atomic reactor said to remember the acronym is dish or
2:23 pm
exit provided. is that a stress tests were conducted because it was showed that even if a semana rentals offer morning line and we get carried ashore on those with our safety is still insured. and radiation emissions will be prevented or chemical shut in the water around academic la monassa, we sort seals, which seemed perfectly fine about swimming around the nuclear reactors. people here are hopeful that switching to atomic energy will also reduce to extra lines and coke, that remains its main source of power. you see the snow. so turns blacks and times because of the emissions are coming out of the old coal power plant. so you can see this plant right from here in search for one refuge. we came across a local library that's apparently quite popular. mainly because of the extremely slow internet in the city, which makes watching netflix or youtube,
2:24 pm
a torture and having a poor choice of other entertainment people actually read books. in fact, the 2 ladies working at the library gladly offered as high beverages and for their hearts out on what they love and hate about the city of berkeley store. prices are a heated topic and vivica in august. i read sometimes when i'm in the shop, i look at some items and i think if i can afford them or not yell though, i really want them. but i rarely buy cheese ish because it costs a 101200 rou. gulshan rarely by hand because it was also real expensive. what did you eat for dinner yesterday? yeah, i don't have deer. i'm on the diet. the vex rated among russia's most expensive cities, which may sense because 90 percent of goods are shipped from mainland russia. things like food, household items and cloves cost way more than say in moscow. just look at the price back here. cucumber, 11 you as dollars per kilo to made it $11.00 per kilo. and there are just
2:25 pm
a 2 tomatoes left, 2 in the tire shop. now this one, garlic 15 us dollars per kilogram is just for maybe 5 times more than st. masika where i live. and that's one is my favorite. it's soft green onions, 16 west dollars per one piece. busy can. busy st. in here in the know 3 usually eat frozen food. if you look here, you can see that everything is in the freezer berries, f version, everything is frozen. if we get fresh groceries, it's when they're brought over by frame. things like sausages or right to protect by plane. yes, that's crazy. i should keep in mind that to that is a small and close knit committee of law. fewer than 5000 people. and for instance, if a person is short in cash, he can borrow from the shop. see that on assuming copy book the shopkeeper,
2:26 pm
quickly put away it's a handwritten list of those who owe money to the store. if you've lived next to someone for 20 years now, they still live here with us. then you can say there's no escape from the submarine . they'll come and take what they need today. and another day they'll return the money. for the real disaster. 4, perfect is when a supply ship doesn't come on time. say because of bad weather. therefore some local shops break, the law by not getting rid of expired products, just in case is just bought right here. expired in june. look. so it's a 5 months ago. but i just bought it with a 50 percent discount. it's a common thing in the deck when we show the expired juice box to put ex, deputy mayor, he scratch, he's had for about a minute. local authorities are aware of the problem, but there is little they can do until the vet can be supplied regularly all year round. we have appropriate items and shops. we don't always have on
2:27 pm
a shop owners from agatha, so we'll see you are, we have a supply period from june to november, fulfill most of the fresh groceries will come closer to the end of this period comes from under gus. are possible, and this is how prices are decided because it all gets destroyed and no one wants to have financial losses. i live with the edge of the world is no picnic. if you want to survive in a place like this, you have to stick together to rule that everyone here seems to leave by we have a different mentality to people on the mainland. we are like a big family mexican nationality. people are actually friends with each other here . this door, cold and expensive. uh huh. yeah, i love my town. very much. honestly. i gave birth to to amazing boys and i've met the men of my life. headache has given me a lot of what makes people stain this down. it's been difficult. nobody knows and looked at if everyone wants to move to the mainland, but they come back cut off. so now that you've seen, hey,
2:28 pm
you'll come back as well. congratulations, with the new revolutionary power plant, which brings jobs in higher salaries. things begin to look out for the city. but it's not electricity per se, that makes things change. it's the people. and that's the true power of the vacuum in russia party. ah ah ah, with
2:29 pm
ah david i'm african or town senior watching a very special episode, a going underground, an interview with the u. s. h. former un ambassador president donald trump's national security advisor, john bolden. he joins me now from washington, dc. his memoir about his time in the white us, the room where it happened is out now that master, thanks so much for coming on her. if it carnage news coming from a condos in kandahar, you're actually the 2nd national security advisor of donald trump to be on going
2:30 pm
underground. you say in your book the room where it happened, the afghanistan deal that's trumps one time will prove who is right. and the full extent to the deal may not become apparent until after trump leaves office. what is your assessment as a former national security adviser of fee by the administration, the foreign policy, especially on afghanistan? well, i think this is one of those few instances where binding trump agree on on policy both wanted to get out of afghanistan at both the ignored the consequences. i think many people thought were foreseeable at what biden did was take trumps deal out, which was flawed. in many, many respects and essentially adopted it as his own policy disregarded the advice of senior advisors and the pentagon state department, the white house. and i think the consequences have been plain to say that returned afghanistan to control by the taliban and everything. and so flowing from that,
